Story


Once upon a time there were three neighboring kingdoms each with a magnificent castle, from which ruled kings and queens, princes and princesses. One king was a fornicating libertine, another captivated by a strange animal, while one of the queens was obsessed by her wish for a child. Sorcerers and fairies, fearsome monsters, ogres and old washerwomen, acrobats and courtesans are the protagonists of this loose interpretation of the celebrated tales of Giambattista Basile.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..Matteo Garrone's Tale of Tales is fabulous in every sense..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]
“..although wobbly in parts like so many cinematic anthologies, Garrone's alternately silly and entrancing adaptation of Giambattista Basile's Neapolitan stories provides a welcome gothic antidote to more stately treatments of similar material..”
by Eric Kohn [indieWIRE]
“..a slightly bumpy two hours of storytelling, but it's peppered with wonder and unexpected humor..”
by Gregory Ellwood [HitFix]
